Post by RhiN0 » Sun Nov 13, 2005 12:25 am

Okay, i got my irc runnin fine, on a free domain thing, but i wanna make mine an actual one now,

If you get a domain name from http://www.godaddy.com, Round Robin DNS is included (IIRC)

Wait. More than enough? As in: theres a limit? Damn them. Can I get a NS record for my whole domain and do it myself?
Why the hell can't my signature be empty?

They give you like 99 subdomains, so you don't need to worry about running out :P

Anyone know of any other domains that do this (the domain reg. + the dns stuff) in 1 package. Or if not - any good companies that do it seperate

I think GoDaddy is probable the cheapest one you will find... You can go through no-ip.org, but that will cost you 3x what GoDaddy costs.

The best thing you can do, is get the basic package and just add on what you need. If you are unsure what you need, it may be best to email the support and ask. (if you aren't using GoDaddy, I don't know if you can add things after you have bought the domain or not)

GoDaddy for subdomains

Post by TheFrog » Fri Nov 25, 2005 1:59 pm

I use godaddy.. you cant use them for the SubDomains for your IRC servers.

you can use ZoneEdit.com - Its free & fast.. great for web-forwards, subdomainss and round robin dns for capacity load share etc.

There service is free but you do have to change the nameservers on the GoDaddy side. Its pretty easy to do.

I did have some trouble setting up the e-mail but it turned out that it was a fault on Go-Daddy;s end.. their customer support is actually great.

So my choice would be Godaddy domain & zoneedit for DNS :-)

One of my paired servers uses godaddy for a subdomain...
Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

I use godaddy, and I have no problem with subdomains and IRC servers.

Contact GoDaddy Support for help with subdomains.
